  • TBA

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When Daphne attempts to pull the brakes on the cart, her left foot is shown with four toes instead of five.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Officer Hiroshi gets angry at the gang for interfering with the mystery, a frequent theme throughout the series. However, in this particular instance the gang didn't actually do anything except attend the parade, something Officer Hiroshi himself encouraged, so his anger is somewhat misplaced.

Fred: It makes total sense, it's a play on words!
Scooby: Don't be so crabby.
Shaggy: Crabby!
